Learning how to sing with healthy and sustainable technique is at the core of my lessons. Other fundamental concepts that students cover in my voice lessons are anatomy of the voice, vocal hygiene, artistry and performance. With every student, I start by understanding what their goals are and the type of music that they want to learn. From there, classes are tailored to fit each student’s goals, age and level.
My top priority as a voice instructor is to create a safe space for students to express themselves authentically, and to equip students with musical tools that will empower them to create with confidence and to sing pieces they are passionate about.
I am a professional singer-songwriter, actor (dip. Theatre Arts/ MacEwan University) and voice coach based in Vancouver, BC. I have been studying the voice and performing on stage for over 20 years. I teach within the pop/ musical theatre/ soul/ blues/ folk and jazz genres. I am passionate about continuing to learn more about my instrument and being able to give the knowledge I have and continue to gain back to my students is extremely rewarding and fulfilling for me.
